Clint Bowyer’s No. 15 Toyota Camry will be red, white and blue for several upcoming races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Farmington Hills, MI – May 1, 2015 – Living Essentials, LLC, the distributor of 5-hour ENERGY®, continues to support military causes with the announcement of a second year of limited edition cherry flavored 5-hour ENERGY® shots. From May 1 through July 31, 2015, the company will donate five cents from the sale of every specially marked red, white and blue bottle of cherry flavored 5-hour ENERGY® to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF), a top-rated nonprofit organization that supports the military’s special operations forces and their families through college scholarships, family services, and financial stipends.  The minimum guaranteed donation is $200,000.

“Last year’s program was a huge success and customers loved cherry flavored 5-hour ENERGY® shots, so it was a no brainer for us to support this worthy cause for another year,” said Melissa Skabich, Living Essentials’ communications director.

To kick off the second year of the program, the SOWF logo will be placed on the hood of NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer’s red, white and blue No. 15 Toyota Camry for Michael Waltrip Racing at several upcoming races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule, including May 9th at the Kansas Speedway, May 15th at the All Star Showdown, May 24th at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and June 14th at Michigan International Speedway.

“I’m so proud to drive the red, white and blue 5-hour ENERGY® Toyota Camry to support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for a second year,” said Bowyer.  “These folks do amazing work, and it’s so easy to support the cause.”

“We are grateful for the wonderful support and generosity from the makers of 5-hour ENERGY® and driver Clint Bowyer,” said Steven L. McLeary, Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s executive director.  “The funds donated are a huge investment in the families of fallen special operations heroes, allowing us to continue to honor the sacrifices of fallen warriors by sending their survivors to college.”
